By the way, they’ve started selling this blog on the Amazon Kindle. No kidding. So, if you get stuck in a bus, the middle of nowhere, or, like Brandon Morrow, an airplane or baseball clubhouse a lot and want the convenience of reading this on your electronic reader, this may be the thing for you. If not, I don’t see a dime of it, so no harm, no foul.
You know what? I haven’t seen enough of Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Tex., what with the 15 hours spent there on Sunday, then my flight delays getting home from Dallas yesterday because the airline-whose-name shall-not-be mentioned had the air condiitoning system break down on their plane in Seattle, meaning an extra two hours getting to the Lone Star State to pick us up. So, let me tell you, I’m just thrilled that the Mariners are going to open their 2010 season next April 5 on the road in Oakland and then — you guessed it — beautiful Texas! Hopefully, it stops raining there by then.
The Mariners open at home on April 12 against Oakland. In a real different twist from this season, they don’t face the Angels at all until May. They do play the Angels right after the All-Star Break, in Anaheim, which is where the Midsummer Classic is being held as well. So, our paper’s budgetary beancounters would like to, no doubt, thank MLB for that.
Jack Zduriencik gets to make a homecoming of sorts when the M’s travel to Milwaukee for interleague play. They will also go to St. Louis and San Diego, the latter of which salvages the tourism part of these trips, though I’ve always wanted to tour the Schotz factory with the Fonz.
